2011 WRX Limited Spark Silver (5 Door)
Had this issue with my 2012 Premium. It also, had the "homelink" mirror setup. I hit a bump and it fell right down, only hanging from the wires. The mount with the two screw holes is made of aluminum and strips out easily when the screw is originally threaded in. They warranty it for me no problem. It is a known defect according to my dealer here.
My rear view mirror (with Homelink) had been vibrating for a couple of weeks before I took it in for the 7500 mile service. I could adjust it and it would stay still for 10 or 15 minutes, then start vibrating again. Only when I was on my way to the dealer did I finally remember to actually look at it. The screw was loose. The dealer tightened the screw for me, but the mirror is still vibrating. Same deal - if I adjust it, It'll stay still for 10 mins. Looks like I'm going back to the dealer. Joy.
Thanks for the part number! I'm stationed with the Air Force in Korea, and this just save me a big hassle. It's a day trip to the only dealer in the country that i know of, and they don't have warranty support for my US spec.... Thanks again!
